A team of Rotarians, through their non-profit The Global Impact Group, has brought the Volunteer Surge program to Rotary. Through an impressive partnership with the Yale School of Public Health, ADP, Salesforce, LinkedIn, gofundme, and Amazon, Rotary is calling for anyone interested in supporting at-risk populations during the COVID-19 crisis.
Given the emergency healthcare demands of COVID-19, many vulnerable individuals with non-urgent cases lack healthcare resources. This has created an increasing need for community partnership, and these organizations have teamed up to provide free training for those interested in becoming Telehealth Volunteers or Community Health Workers. In these roles, you will be able to help communities in need.
- 8-10 hours of online training
- support patients from home utilizing their personal phone or computer
- spare time an individual is willing to donate to the cause can be spent helping work the cases our current healthcare force no longer has the resources to handle

- front-line volunteer supporting patients in the field

Rotarians are people of action. In times of crisis, we work together, going beyond ourselves in support of our communities, especially finding ways to help those in need.
Signing up takes less than 60 seconds. You can start training immediately, and upon completion, you’ll get access to WorkMarket to find opportunities to impact those in need with your new skills. Oakland Uptown Rotary is excited to be at the forefront of this new and unique opportunity.
